Is Big Show Becoming A Willing Enforcer Of The Triple H-McMahon Regime?
Over the past several weeks, we've seen Big Show "forced" into uncomfortable situations in which he's been forced to assault various people. Stephanie McMahon has used Big Show's "financial" situation, due to him being "broke", to leverage him as a reluctant enforcer who has to do as he's told or be fired. We've seen great reluctance and the shedding of tears when Show has been "forced" to knock out Daniel Bryan and Dusty Rhodes. Last night on the Miz TV segment, Show definitely sold reluctance but only a fraction of what we've seen. There was little hesitation in Show as he knocked out The Miz on Stephanie's orders before leaving.
I'm wondering if this means Show will embrace his new role and his reluctance to comply will dwindle more and more with each television appearance. He's over a barrel as far as the storyline goes and the direction could result in an "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" mentality on his part in which he decides to do his "job" to the best of his ability. It's all but written in the stars that Bryan ultimately comes out of his feud with Orton as WWE Champion, so Big Show would be a genuinely daunting challenger for Bryan. Even though Big Show isn't the "face" that Triple H & Stephanie would want for WWE, they could see him as a tool designed to get the title from Bryan until they're able to "pick" who they feel does present the "image" they want.
